Minnesota Wildfire Update

Written by

MENAHGA, Minn. (AP) Fire crews are searching for hotspots by air using heat-sensing equipment above a northwestern Minnesota wildfire.

 

A helicopter is flying low and slow over the Green Valley fire Friday. Crews are using the hand-held sensor to find smoldering fires in the 7,100 acres burned by the wildfire which started Tuesday.

Minnesota Incident Command System spokeswoman Becca Manlove says the fire is not growing and no additional structures have been lost since the 55 homes and buildings were destroyed earlier in the week near Menahga. Manlove says the fire is 65 percent contained as firefighters make progress in securing the containment lines around the fire perimeter.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. No injuries have been reported.

Wisconsin Wildfire Update

Written by

MADISON, Wis. (AP) Authorities say logging operations started a massive wildfire in northwestern Wisconsin that destroyed more than a dozen homes. The state Department of Natural Resources announced Thursday that law enforcement officials confirmed logging equipment started the fire.

The fire began Tuesday afternoon. It destroyed 17 homes and forced dozens of people to evacuate as the blaze burned across 9,000 acres. But no injuries have been reported. The blaze began Tuesday afternoon near Simms Lake in Douglas County, 40 miles southeast of Duluth, Minn. Authorities say firefighters had the fire contained by late Wednesday evening.

The DNR made the announcement on its official Twitter feed. An agency spokesman declined immediate comment.

Dick Trickle Deat At 71

Written by

 

WIZM'S Dan Deicher (track announcer at the La Crosse Speedway) and Dick Trickle at the La Crosse Speedway in 2012.

 

Retired stock-car driver Dick Trickle, known for his colorful name and short-track prowess, died on Thursday from an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound. He was 71.

According to the Lincoln County, N.C., sheriff's department, the incident occurred at 12:02 p.m. ET at Forest Lawn Cemetery off Highway 150 in Boger City.
The Lincoln County Communications Center received a call, apparently from Trickle, that "there would be a dead body and it would be his." Center workers tried to place a return call to the number but did not get an answer. Emergency units found Trickle's body lying near his pickup truck when they arrived. Lt. Tim Johnson, who heads the Lincoln County detective department, said that at the family's request, no additional information would be released at this time.

Trickle has been billed as the winningest short-track driver in the history of stock-car racing, recording about 1,000 victories in feature races, including 67 in 1972. He was the rookie of the year in NASCAR's premier series in 1989 with six top-five finishes and nine top 10s. Much of Trickle's short-track success came in Wisconsin, where he was nicknamed the "White Knight'' because of his SuperAmerica paint scheme. He even has a La Crosse Speedway Oktoberfest Race Weekend race named after him, The Trickle 99. Motorsports Management's Chuck Deery told us Trickle will be missed by the speedway, his former racing parnters and competitors and his fans.
